These folks apparently constitute part of The Donald's base and in my limited experience, they have reasons to be frustrated with social service agencies and the legal system.   Social services, as far as I can tell, are overburdened with paper work that many clients have a hard time reading and filling out.  The legal system is still encumbered with language that prevents outsiders from understanding what are the correct procedures. In addition, lawyers cost far too much for many folks. 

UPDATE: A reporter for McClatchy came to a similar conclusion:
The future of Trump’s candidacy was apparent last week when he stopped in wealthy Kiawah Island, a southeastern South Carolina residential and resort community. The audience was a well-educated, politically sophisticated group full of teachers, lawyers, nurses, doctors and retired government workers.

Life at work for these people was tough enough, but now they have to deal with the government for their Medicare, Social Security and other benefits. And they’re finding it a nearly indecipherable maze.

Commentors at Ian Welsh's post predicting the GOP Elite and neocons both will promote Clinton over Trump.

This mainstream Zionist magazine has motives for publishing an interesting piece like this----
protecting Israel in the form of electing Hillary. Any other angle is merely window dressing.

Very interesting. The mainstream Zionist magazines are enthused about "feminist"
Clinton, uninterested in more dovish Sanders, disdainful of Trump who wants Putin and Russia to try their luck in Syria and the Mideast....

Perhaps this explains a Hillary wants a no fly zone and more assertive US warmongering in that arena.....

"Amos Harel, a leading Israeli military observer with high-grade access, made it clear: “the war in Syria has largely served Israel’s interests. The ongoing fighting has worn down the Syrian army to a shadow of its former capabilities. And Hezbollah, Israel’s main adversary in the north, is losing dozens of fighters every month in battle. Israel has been quietly wishing success to both sides and would not have been against the bloodletting continuing for a few more years without a clear victor” Now, after successful Russian intervention, Israel states openly that “an Assad victory would be bad for Israel” and it calls upon the West “to send real military aid to the less extreme Sunni rebels”.
Thus, the will of Israel, and of Israel Lobby in the US, directly contradicts the will of people as it was lucidly expressed by Stephen Kinzer. You can follow the lead of your Israeli Lobby, or you can have peace and security, but you can’t have both, it is that simple."

Israel Is Changing Its Approach to Syria War Amid Assad's Battleground Advances

Russian intervention has tilted the scales, and Jerusalem is concerned of a regime victory, which would be victory for Iran as well. To prevent that, Israeli officials believe West must intervene in favor of moderate rebels.
